TLASILA's myspace page:

the official site:


To Live and Shave in L.A. was founded by Tom Smith in Miami Beach, Florida, USA. Smith had previously been a member of Boat Of (Athens, GA, 1979-1983), Peach of Immortality (Washington, DC, 1984-1990), and Pussy Galore (Washington, DC, 1985-6); the first TLASILA demos were recorded in July 1990.

A Short History: Smith met Frank "Rat Bastard" Falestra in 1991 at South Beach's Sync Studios. A co-owner of the dank, rambling facility, Bastard quickly joined Smith in the nascent collective. Two years of continuous recording and local performances (under the Peach of Immortality moniker) followed. By the autumn of 1993, Smith and Bastard had amassed a larder of eighty songs...

During a Miami Beach rooftop party in the summer of 1993, Smith met electronics whiz, undisputed global oscillator overlord, and soirée host Ben Wolcott. As Miles Davis' Dark Magus album was the only music allowed on the stereo throughout the event, an invitation for Wolcott to join TLASILA was reflexively extended. Ben was convinced to join the burgeoning collective soon after. History shall not forgive them...

Meanwhile... Following a lengthy post-production regimen, To Live and Shave in L.A.'s debut album, 30-minuten männercreme, was released on the Love Is Sharing Pharmaceuticals label.


After the release of 30-mm, the Bastard/Wolcott/Smith engine went into overdrive. Between 1994 and 1996, they recorded the primary elements of the following releases:

Prostitution Heute! (1994, 2x7" EP); "Helen Butte" vs. Masonna Pussy Badsmell (1994, released 1996, CD); Vedder Vedder Bedwetter (1995, CD); An Interview with the Mitchell Brothers (1995, CD); Commmiinnggg! and Practis'd the Black Art (1996, CD); Tonal Harmony (1997, CD EP); Les Tricoteuses (1997, CD); Peter Criss vs. Peter Christopherson (1998, released 2000, a collaboration with crazed UK noise aparatchiks KF36, CD); Where a Horse Has Been Standing and Where You Belong (1998, CD); Amour Fou on the Edge of Misogyny (1998; fractured breakbeat remix of Wigmaker dub vesions, created by Billy Taylor [Melted Men, TLASILA 1997-8] in 1998 and released 2001);The Wigmaker in Eighteenth-Century Williamsburg (2xCD, 2002; the album that broke TLASILA internationally, inasmuch as they could be broken, etc.); and God and Country Rally! (2004, CD).

(The Wigmaker in Eighteenth-Century Williamsburg, begun in 1995, completed in 2000, released through Menlo Park Recordings in 2002. Cover design by Syd Garon.)
Their philosophy? PRE. (But they're open-minded about their essential close-mindedness.)
In late 1996, Ben Wolcott spun off from TLASILA to join the remarkable mega-freak ensemble Frosty. A revolving cast of avant-malcontents soon entered the Shavian fray... European tours in 1997 and 1998 featured Nandor Nevai, Billy Taylor, Greg Chapman, Julien Becourt, and for one exceptionally bizarre gig in Paris, Bill Orcutt...
The 1999-2000 edition of To Live and Shave in L.A. comprised Bastard, Smith, Nevai, Weasel Walter (of the Flying Luttenbachers and myriad aggregations), and Misty Martinez. By the summer of 2000, To Live and Shave in L.A. 2 had arrived, and soon after, a full-fledged clone explosion. Smith decamped for Europe to begin OHNE with Dave Phillips... By December 2003, Bastard and Smith decided to haul the Lamborghini out of deep salt storage and get back on the demolition derby circuit. Ben quickly re-upped, and Mark, Don, Andrew, Chris, and Graham soon followed.

Rat Bastard - small electronics, radio receivers, bass, etc.; Don Fleming - guitar, synth, treatments, backing vox, etc.; Chris Grier - guitar and electronics (and TLASILA majordomo); Mark Morgan (also in NYC's superlative Sightings) - guitar, backing vox, and four-track; Graham Moore - laptop and treatments; Thurston Moore (the Shave's honorary chaplain) - guitar and treatments; Tom Smith - voice, small electronics, laptop, album production, etc.; Andrew W.K. - keyboards, backing vox, etc.; Ben Wolcott - oscillators and related devices. Membership is fluid; the collective entertain the occasional audition request.
Detailed histories of each of the TLASILA members, as well as additional information on the recordings referenced above, may be found within the pages of the official To Live and Shave in L.A. web.

Other recordings of note:

Spatters of a Royal Sperm (1991; the late, lamented Doris Wishman, a friend of the South Florida TLASILA extended family, directed the video for this unreleased - but widely bootlegged - four-track EP; a legit release looms); My "Limp" Went Husserl on Me (1991-2, pre-mannercreme Miami recordings, planned for a 1992 release but jettisoned in favor of the material that would later form 30-mm... eight songs from the Husserl sessions made the jump to minuten); Tony Conrad, Fat-Ass (created 1998-2000, currently in hyperstasis).

As alluded above, the majority of their recordings have emerged only after protracted grand mal post-production seizures. The Wigmaker was assembled over a five-year period; Horoscopo required four. Conversely, An Interview with the Mitchell Brothers, the product of a dare, was written, recorded, mixed, and mastered in a day. Each has their detractors...

V.A.-"FALTER" released with TIME THEORY(USA)!

TIME THEORY label put out a brilliant 3-hour compilation featuring some of the finest experimental composers around the globe.The list of participants:

or by visiting the label's page:

about TIME THEORY label:
Timetheory Netlabel was established in January 2008 as a way for label founder Jon 7 to continue the work begun with the Microlabel, established in 2006.

Stylistically Timetheory releases span several genres including ambient, dark ambient, post-rock, glitch, techno, house, musique concrete, noise, power electronics and the generally unclassifiable. The emphasis is on music that 'feels' right, and there's a heavy touch of scientific futurism in the overall aesthetic. To date it is believed that Timetheory is the only netlabel in existence with a hexadecimal catalogue number system that stretches into both positive and negative integers.

We're a friendly lot, some of us are about bonkers, but in general we welcome collaborations and remix 'battles'. Other netlabels who would be interested in interlabel projects should get in contact, and we do accept demos from those who feel their style is compatible.

Give our releases a listen, there's a lot to digest, for sure, but there's no doubt you'll find something you like.

Lezet's "Intervals" released with FORMAT NOISE(Germany)!

catalogue nr.: form-net-25
artist: Lezet
album: Intervals
style: experimental / other
release date: November 24, 2008

track list:
intervals (variation)

"The "Intervals" album is sort of a sequel to "Lezet2" and it delves a bit more into the issue of track duration (15-sec track vs. a 60-minute track)."Lezet2" album was about presenting concise musical statements, and "Intervals" thrives on having a main-theme and variations interact within a 60-minute frame.The timbre builds communication blocks varying in pitch and duration that interlace at intervals.This album contains the first 60-minute track Lezet has ever created.
It's the perfect experimental album for christmas time, because it sounds a little bit like a christmas tree on LSD. It's great experimental work, so please enjoy it."

Lezet's "MELD3" released with COLIN JOHNCO RECORDS(Paris,France)

"Meld3" is the third in a series of Lezet's albums of collaborations with various innovative musicians/bands/ensembles around the globe.It showcases tracks distinctly electronic in their making and adventurous in their design.
The list of collaborators on "Meld3" (in order of appearance):
HOM (Northampton, Midlands,United Kingdom)
When Tom Dinsdale's HOM debut album was released through HEADPHONICA RECORDS,I doubt he thought of being a constant source of inspiration to all the open-minded musicians around the world.If you ever asked yourself what was the next big thing out there that should have become a part of the NINJA TUNE or WARP catalogue, the answer is "HOM!".Formative influences include:Four Tet
Jaga Jazzist,Tom Waits,Einsturzende Neubauten,Bjork,Boards Of Canada,Miles Davis,John Cage,The Mars Volta,Phillip Glass,Pharoh Sanders,Masada,Cabaret Voltaire,Depeche Mode,Bauhaus,Faust...

CHRIST PHYR BLYR aka CHRISTOPHER BYLER aka ON THE RIM OF THE WHEEL A NAIL aka INDUSTRY RIVALS (?,The United States of America)-one of the most innovative composers and movie-makers Lezer ever came across in his pursuit of collaborators.Images and sounds speak louder than words:

NEUBAU (Niederösterreich ,Austria)
... born 1978 in Austria
... composing since the age of 12, fascinated by algorithmic composing that time and ever since then, playing whatever produces sound waves in some improvisational projects. Doing tape music.
... evermore into electronic music and the implementation of scientific models in composition.
...generally more interested in processes than outcomes - and simultaneously in the outcome, that causes process...
...sounds/unsounds of nature and the sounds/unsounds i have in mind when being amidst impressive sceneries. Silence.
...And concepts and methods in life sciences: selforganisation, microscopy, chemical analysis, evolutionary models, molecular biology etc.
..trying to grow in being influenced, so: to be continued.
"I am a sound artist, with and without instruments, with and without teachers, other musicians, microphones, scores. Placements, settings and developments of sounds that just seem to happen, to occur without compositional intentions fascinated me ever since.
The focus of my actual works is the implementation of scientific models and ideas into music. Not just to translate them: hopefully to dance them through sounds, to let them shine through.
As well i am very interested in sounds as a source and an end of visual impressions. so my projects lead to collaborations with visual artists and film producers."

SINK (Fremantle,Australia)
influences:classical music, grunge, heavy rock, the music on old role playing games of the super nintendo, the urge to be original, life and it’s dealings. Those who are original inspire.
Biography of Brief:
The land is grey with the tiring of growth and melodic descents are in complete order. The sequence to land and the sky to graze, sandlings flitter (flitter) flap and crap. Strappy and strong the spoonbills raise their cheeks, songs of glitter and eloquence. Cry and complain, lace and demane, our truly heart reason be weavels.
Weavels to bleed, mosquitos to suck and cranberries to juice for the purification. So slap on your goiter and rip out the cheese, wine for the diners and mold for the weeds. Spat at and caught for; a dinner for two, rand and rand and mullah and dime.
Call the birds, tweet, tweet, tweet. Scaring the angular cloud dispersements into a flipping frenzy of grief, and question. Question the ground you walk on, nothing is certain.
Constantly changing belief and erroneous spacey blossom tips from friends so friendly as to deceive.
Be mindful of this but, remember to... breathe, and breathing means smiling. A happy life of balanced worry and discontentment, but positively certain the scale can be set and reached.
Love the pixies and fae creatures bounding, lounging. Play with the mites of magicks and create your whirlpools of desires. Living this time for now, this effervescent love is lore and law.
Please.. me? I’m breathing fairy gold dust and it makes my nose blacken, blackened.
Just breathe.. (yet another rambling about breathing) =)
- Matt

ME RAABENSTEIN (Berlin,Germany)
Having a filmmakers and painters background, me raabenstein investigates in overlaping structures and the lamination of inappropiate ingredients. constituted with impatience and intrusiveness the process of producing asks for constant conversion and unsung modus operandi. the unconsciousness is often recalled as a perfect working method of artists from this genre, materialising and structuring voids to be freed and filled with advanced and cutting edged content. analysing different layers of proceeding structures, me guides his musical textures towards an adulteration of unaccustomed sonances, cluttering cacophanys and rhytmic paragon.

J EDGAR COOKIE (OMAHA, Nebraska,The United States) aka DOWHOWER.Influences:Rhea Dee, Louis Andriessen, Johnny Cash, Humphrey Searle, Bernard Herrmann, Alexander Courage, Dominic Frontiere, Steppenwolf, Black Sabbath, Grand Funk Railroad, Ennio Morricone, Jimi Hendrix, Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, Yes, Frank Zappa, John McLaughlin, Wendy Carlos, Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, Sidney Bechet, Blind Lemmon Jefferson, Thelonious Monk, All the Modal Counterpoint Masters, Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Arnold Schoenberg, Bela Bartok, Anton Webern, John Cage, Elliot Carter, John Coltrane, Anthony Braxton, George Crumb, Peter Maxwell Davies, Gustav Mahler, Ella Fitzgerald, Ruth Crawford Seeger.

Trakur is Bojan Dojkic's brainchild.This one-man experimental gem transcends and outgrows individual genres.The work he put out so far is amazing, innovative,visceral,energetic,unique.Check TRAKUR out at:

"er selbst" is a reflexive pronoun for the 3rd person singular, maskulinum in german. er selbst refers to himself absolutly and totally, but doen's mean anything else then this.
the sounds that seem to come from er selbst do not belong to music or art or whatever - they just belong to themselves.

PROTECIOUS (Perigord/Morningsdale,Ohio,The United States)
"Say what you will about my art, that's fine, but you will never say that it isnt unique or that it isnt original or that I didnt take a long time making things, because I did take endless hours of work making art, very proudly, very passionatly and the only insult I give myself is the day I make art or music for the wrong reasons, my reasons have always been and always will be encouragment, optimism, creativity, imagination, motivation, originality, and dedication to art like the artist that I am... I dont seek to be mozart, beethoven, I dont want to be famous or on television, I have always just been Protecious, and that puts a smile on my face... now what about you? are you doing what you were meant to do? are you doing with your talents what you were meant to do? im not judging, im just encouraging, put the video games away, dont get drunk another night, when you are 75 years old dont you want to look back and see all you left behind and made and did, or do you want to look back and remember defeating people in video games, or getting trashed every night?...your choice..."

LITMUS0001 (Madison, Wisconsin,The United States)
Jonathan Ewald's (LITMUS0001)words:"Litmus0001 grew up in a small town in the 216, but now it's the 330. When he turned 18, he went to the 513 to learn how life works. He also helped invent/mimic shoegazer in the band Sinker, which somehow still gets press there once in a while. 4 yr later, he went to the 615 to continue his study of how life works at a much finer, more detailed level. Additionally he began his study of how to channel emotion by spontaneous expressionist/impressionist sonic surrender using various modes and methods in the bands Electric Mayhem, Local Anesthetic, Waywards Legs, and Simple Circuits. He was also a contributing member of the Kirkwood Arts and Social Collective and it's semi-official Ensemble Chamber Orchestra. In 2001, he moved to the 509 to develop new ways of looking at how life works, paying attention to everything all at once without knowing what you're looking it, describing it all with a limited-variable equation. Unfortunately, he really wanted to be in the 206 and the 503 during this time. It was here, in the desolate high desert rain shaddow of Mt Adams, Mt Ranier and Mt Stuart that litmus0001 developed in earnest as a method to combat crippling depression and near-terminal psychosis. In 2004, he returned east, this time landing in the 608, to figure out how life goes haywire in that thing called cancer, and how to drug this haywire so it goes quiet and benign. Here, he has also further developed his spontaneous transitory expressionist/impressionist sub-mental channeling methods to chisel sonic sculptures and soundscapes out of thin air. He continues to perform these experiments in self-imposed isolation in the presence of select audiences. ***************** He is married, and has two dogs that he communicates with empathically; they are his familiars. *********** All litmus0001 music is absolutely free. Just like you should be, think you are, but probably aren't.
For me, the creative process is cathartic. I have to have my mind in the right place when I consider performing and while I am performing.
The process is meditative. Ideally, the mind is blank, open only to the immediate, thoughtfully considering the present situation and potential optional ideas to pursue from that time forward. A tentative step is taken in that direction, and either it catches or it does not. Either it catches an d is pursued, or it is developed further into a theme or a direction, whether it be melodic or textural."

Lezet&ThrouRoof's "Adria" released with DogEaredRecords(Mexico)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"The second Lezet/Throuroof album is out!"Adria" is a walk in a different direction,the gustatory and olfactory focal point being the Adriatic Sea itself.Experiencing it and enjoying it on both its shores, the sea inspired our aural venture into depicting the feelings it evoked.Any storytelling that a listener might conjure up while plunging into these pieces is purely unintended and even contrary to the original design of the collaborators.

Here's what Max Go wrote about this release:
"The latest from Lezet / Throuroof is four timbrally akin pieces that form the transluscent walls of their aural pharmacy. I hear the sound of wet fingers circling around the edges of myriad crystal vials. Meanwhile, a recurring flock of cloned seagulls seem to be the stereo delayed glee club inside this four movement experiment. But then again, maybe it's not an experiment at all. Maybe L/T fully know what L/T are doing. Through the calculated use of hollowed out and echoic sounds we are drawn into a digital cathedral that is its own glass pipe organ, churning out ethereal hymns. The disciplined palette of sounds used relates to square waves, high frequency attack transients and incidental effects. This non - busy, unspectacular but nonetheless tasteful approach to composition ultimately results in a calming listening experience."

Lezet's "Character" album released with HEADPHONICA (Germany)-a free-download album!!!!!!!!!

This album was recorded by using a typing computer keyboard as the sound-delivering device where each letter is represented by a distinct note.At times , the nature of the revealed melody called for more of a strictly typist approach, while
at other times the individual track necessitated changes in pitch,melody,dynamics to avoid sounding sternly typist kinda thing.I was always fascinated by the relation between typing machines and
music keyboards and this was a way to pay homage to this childhood fascination of mine.Plus I had tons of things to type out while at the University and the arrhythmic nature of the sounds made while typing
galvanised me into exploring the abovementioned relation.

TEARPALM's "Prijatelj sa Duhovima Mesta" released with SLUSAJ NAJGLASNIJE (Zagreb,Croatia)

TEARPALM - Prijatelj sa Duhovima Mesta (2008,label: Slušaj najglasnije)

Projekt Marka Dabetića iz Niša koji je objavljen kao dupli cd. Glazbenik je znan kao gitarist iz one postave Paganske Ljubavi koja je 26.V 2007. s Bojan Ilić Bokerinijem snimila album "Monolit u plastu sena" uživo u klubu Feedback u Nišu. Prvi cd je njegov autorski rad, a drugi sadrži remikseve koje su napravili njegovi glazbeni kolege.
Kod njegovog solističkog rada proteže se eksperimentalna glazbena crta zasnovana na pravilima ambijentalnih struktura u relevantnim minimalističkim periodima izvedbe pomoću kompjutera i elektronike. Glavno obilježje stila Tearpalm su melodičnost, harmonija i lagana, posve usporena drone ritmička potka koja svoje korijene vuče iz ostavštine elektronskih sfera post-industriala, post-techna, electro-glitcha, ambijentalne i avangardne glazbe, a ima tu i blagih primjesa elektronskog noise zvuka, kao i moderne klasične glazbe. Album je naoko mirne atmosfere instrumentalnog karaktera uz tek nekoliko vokalnih samplova i odiše eksperimentalnom tenzijom u pristupu gdje je autor očigledno imao koncept čitave priče. Otvara ga lagani plesni ambijentalni electro-glitch broj "DUBbed her the greatest pain" s prizvukom post-rock gitare i sampliranim dubovima koji djeluju između harmonike i melodike, te je to ujedno jedini plesni komad na ovom cd-u. Već u narednom "Zaratustra 112 & 122" Tearpalm otvara svoj ambijentalni prozor u melodičnost i naglašene orijentalne minijature na instrumentu koji zvuči poput indijskog dobra ili citre. U aranžman su uključeni samplirani fagot, gudači i još poneki duhački instrument u stepenastoj gradaciji. Naslovna "Prijatelj sa Duhovima Mesta" je mrtvo lagana troma koračnica usporena do granica izdržljivosti. Ambijentalka je to čiju atmosferu podražavaju nejasni vokalni samplovi čime autor aludira na duhove i svojom se aranžmanskom prisebnošću može usporediti i s kurentnim doom/drone metalom ili post rockom, no u ovom slučaju izraz je temeljen na horor elektronici koji finišira starim škriputavim samplom uzetim iz pjesme "Last kind words blues" Geeshie Wiley iz 1930. godine. "S.R.S.N.N." je još jedan lagani electro-glitch broj koji pljeni svojim melodijskim eksperimentima i varijacijama u psihodeličnom reverbu, delay i echo formatu. Post-industriala se dotiče psihodelična "Morning glory" koja podsjeća na eksperimente Throbbing Gristle i samo se čeka da odnekud iskoči vokal Genesis P-Orridigea, a nastavak eksperimentalne melodične gradacijske ambijentalnosti slijedi u "Mrtvi pre zore" koja ima i pozadinsku strukturu samplova uzetih s neke nogometne utakmice i folklornog zapisa svirke harmonike i rasplesanog kola iz Plametine s Kosova. Najkraća "Lithium or I tried to kiss a guy when I was 16, and I falled (to like it)" je elegični komad gothic valcera s jednoličnim vokalnim samplom. Melodija me podsjetila na Bauhaus "The three shadow". Odmah potom slijedi najdulji komad na albumu "Voajer" u trajanju od 12 i pol minuta gdje su posve gradacijski smještene minimalističke ambijentalne konture pri čemu autor ne bježi od unakrsnih melodija stupnjevajući ih prema načinu koji je blizak Steve Reichu i Philip Glassu. Posljednja "The whole story of what is" (možda i s dodatkom "Never coming back" kako piše ispod naslova?!...) je odličan eksperimentalno putujući ambijentalni elektronski noise koji finišira isprekidanim samplovima u fade-outu.
Ovo je djelo koncizno i studiozno napravljeno gdje niti jedan ton i zvuk nisu suvišni. Nema prenemaganja i kvazi artističkog bulažnjenja. Sve je na svojem mjestu i ništa ne manjka. Kreativno i dotjerano u svim pogledima od prve do zadnje sekunde.

Drugi cd kao što je navedeno, sadrži remikseve i nešto drugačije verzije 4 kompozicije koje se nalaze na prvom nosaču zvuka, te uz to ima i dva zasebna naslova - lucidni minimalistički "Coop him up (re-laterpretation)" u izvedbi LEZET i plesni (hm?) post-industrial "Morning glory/ Dno zaborava" kojeg potpisuje THIRD I. Na ovom 40 minuta dugačkom komadu mikseva nalazi se i jedna plesna elektronska verzija "S.R.S.N.N. (TMSR mix)" kojeg izvodi MARGITA JE MRTVA, a vraća se u vrijeme electro-popa '80-tih. Za posljednji broj "Prijatelj" - DEEPARTMENT ne bih mogao tvrditi da je remiks nekog broja s albuma. Ako jest, onda je posve neprepoznatljiv jer nema ništa od samplova koje je Tearpalm koristio u izvornom obliku na prvom cd-u. Slobodno ću pretpostaviti da se autor poslužio ovim remiksevima da upotpuni cijelu sliku albuma kao zaokruženo djelo jer da se naknadno objavio djelovao bi kao 13-to prase koje se nigdje ne može uklopiti.
Prvi cd slušati pod obavezno, a drugi tek za popunu dojma. Naravno, ako ste ljubitelj eksperimentalne elektronske glazbe.

Lezet's"Meld2" EP released with AUDIO TONG (Poland)(free dl)

Lezet - Meld 2
[tng1043]word on the release from the AUDIO TONG label site:
"Lezet is one-man experimental project from Serbia. He has released quite an impressive bunch of recordings on various netlabels and we are happy to have him here in our catalogue as well.
"Meld2" was conceived as a set of experimental collaborative pieces with artists from different countries and of somewhat different avantgarde sensibilities."Conversing in The Universal Language - says Lezet - gave birth to this EP and the stretching itself was a reward.Lezet was able to learn and grow from his fellow comrades as he progressed with this EP."
This is the second part of Lezet's collaborative project in which he explores various techniques and possibilities of interactions and collaborations between artists usually not working physically together.
The music is a mixture of avant-garde,electroacoustic, jazz, world music etc. At some points it sounds like improv, at other it reminds of contemporary academic pieces.
Intriguing and intelligent, demanding lots of attention from the listener but rewarding with its quality. Great stuff, listen to it on a good sound system to get as much from this music as possible."

Leo Alves Vieira (biography):
Brazilian, born in February 13th, 1978, at Rio de Janeiro, Leo Alves Vieira's parents both had musical experience. Portuguese father, Diniz, used to play the violin in a priest school orchestra in Portugal, and Brazilian mother, Lucia, used to play the acoustic guitar and sing along with her friends, a successful Brazilian group called "Clube da Esquina", that recorded their first record with Milton Nascimento on vocals. She gave up her instrument to the MPB guitar player Francisco Horta, at that time a political prisoner of Brazilian dictatorship.
Leo's grandfather, Mario Alves de Souza Vieira, father of Lucia, was killed by that dictatorship, tortured (impaled) to death. It seems that his revolutionary grandfather's blood runs in his veins. His musical energy is filled with struggles to musical patterns of all sorts, especially the so-called avant-garde academic scene around the western musical world...
Though his influences relates to various avant-garde composers, as well as popular Brazilian and worldwide 'folk' traditions, Leo Alves Vieira tried to develop a intuitional composition process that flows equally between rational and emotional boundaries.
He began his musical instruction in primary school at Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil along this school's choir, conducted by Hermano Vianna. Since then, he has had acoustic and electric guitar lessons with teachers from Rio and São Paulo as well (when he lived there from 1988 to 1992). In 1994, he entered a full musical education at the Rio de Janeiro State Conservatory, that included Classical Guitar lessons, Traditional and Functional Harmony. After a 2 year period in Philosophy unfinished graduation (1998-2000) at the Brazilian Federal University (UFRJ), he entered the Composition Graduation Course at the same institution (2001) where he continues his studies and also works as a researcher.
His first professional artistic work was a musical score composed for a short movie called "O Fantasma do Theatro Municipal" written and directed by Luis Carlos Lacerda (1994). After some rock bands demo-tapes recorded, and a CD from band called GORE, shows an etc, he began a steady career into composing, signing musical directions, conducting and eventually playing for theater and short movies scores.
Composing for theatre has given Vieira a great opportunity to study and establish a new musical language research within this medium. The organicity between the text, especially the ones written for children, and music is always the goal, without transforming the musical score primary to the theatrical performance, as it happens in musicals or plays for children, where 'all of the sudden' everything (named, the dramatical flow of the theatrical text) stops so that the music comes in and so forth.
The compositional writing process developed by Leo at the academia scenario has the objective to filtrate the historical composing techniques into a personal writing style that blends the 'music for concerto' expression with the other media ways of listening and expressing music such as electroacoustic, jazz, traditional (popular) and rock/pop music. Using the standard instrumental formations of the 'music for concerto', chamber, orchestra or solo, this blending effect is a result not only of exploring new gestures (execution and feeling), taken from these other musical genres, but also from literally mixing up pre-recorded chamber sounds (electronically altered or not), for instance, with electroacoustic fabrics. Or even the other way round where we have electroacoustic timbres played live, in a chamber concerto format. In this case, either acoustic instruments altered in real-time or MIDI / Plugged electronic instruments are used. That was done by the time of his debut as a composer at the XV Biennial of Brazilian Contemporary Music, 2003, with the piece "Estilhaços-Constante Volta ao Indeterminado" (2002) for acoustic and electronic instruments, played by electroacoustic orchestra OFELEX.
Another musical aspect has a very important role in Leo's music making and experimentations: rhythm. Polyrhythmical grids, exploring different rhythmical accents and variations, and, above them all, bringing some
Brazilian feel to this so European influenced format that is the 'music for concerto', are among of the best results Leo Alves Vieira's music has achieved.
Leo Alves Vieira's debut solo album "Sounds of the Orange Coloured Forest" was released September 2006 by Brooklyn, NY based Pralaya Records, and brings mostly his electroacoustic work between 2003 / 2006, which pairs chamber music and Brazilian rhythms. Some of the 11 pieces of this album has been featured in festivals, concerts and several radio shows around the globe, focused on electroacoustic music or even rock/pop music.
Leo Alves' interest in video and image manipulation began in 1994, when he started composing for short-movies, in Lacerda's film "O Fantasma do Theatro Municipal". Until he had his own little digital camera, he did several experimentations with VHS, besides working as a producer in some other short-movies too, all of them shown at cinemas and movie clubs. He also studied acting with great Brazilian movie and theatrical play directors such as Moacir Chaves, Marcus Vinicius Faustini and Carlos Augusto Nazareth.
Such experimentations involved collages and real time documentation on day-by-day living of anonymous normal people from the streets of Niterói, São Paulo, São Tomé das Letras (Minas Gerais) and Rio de Janeiro. The documentary aspect was always influenced by the ideas of Brazilian movie director Arnaldo Jabor, and his documentary technique in the '60s (by the time of Cinema Novo movement) called Cinema Verdade ("Truthful Cinema").
Nowadays, Leo Alves Vieira's production is focused on digital means of filming, especially, the exploration of light and texture on cheap digital equipment, which can result in many interesting effects one almost cannot capture on hi-tech sources. The editing work would either not interfere on these capturing effects or would enhance it creativity, seeking always a great variety of tasteful plasticity and form structure. Subjects are still connected to routine actions, only now we have other than people as players/actors (always anonymous, non-professionals), objects and places.
His last video project was done with assistance and music of several great fretless guitar players around the globe, "Kronosonic Spheres". It's a collection of great fretless and microtonal works and a video installation, a philosophical research over the main theme that surrounds and structures the whole 13 video pieces: "The Elements of Reality". These 'elements' are, in sequence: Fire / Air / Mutation / Speed / Work / Addiction / Obsession / Unknown / Consciousness / Truth / Death / Silence. The video installation features the musical works of Dan Stearns, Marco Oppedisano, 3 Pups Music (Newbie Brad & Pantha), Chris Shaeffer, Vincent Bergeron, The Carousel Painter, Sonic Deviant, Leo Alves Vieira and has just received an offer to be shown at museums and video clubs from Washington DC and Nashville, Tennessee.
Recently, a video piece has been commissioned to Leo Alves Vieira, over a musical work of his debut solo electroacoustic album "Sounds of the Orange Coloured Forest" and will be screened at Bydgoszcz, Poland.
Beside all his musical career as composer, conductor, instrumentalist (acoustic guitar, clarinet, flute, percussion), and video maker, Leo Alves Vieira makes his day-by-day living teaching acoustic guitar to young children up to 17 years old at local schools. Recently he became involved with a non-profit project at the poor community of Grota do Surucucu (Niterói, Rio de Janeiro). In that internationally accomplished enterprise he's responsible for teaching composition, harmony, counterpoint and instrumental arrangements to poor young wood house community inhabitants.

F! -Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,United States

The music of F! pulls from influences around the world. From classical composers such as Bartok and Grieg, to Italian Opera, Parisian Polka, Balkan or Klezmer music. F! paints an atmosphere akin to a Fellini film or a Man Ray dream - the ultimate cartoon score for high society. Music for the villain. Nostalgic God Jazz.
F! is:
Nicky Cardillo-- upright bass
Elliott Hasiuk -- drums, percussion
David Romberg -- percussion, projections
Justin Berger-- guitar
Nick Lerman -- guitar
Shinjoo Cho -- accordian, piano

Wednesday, 30 July 2008
Schnurstrax NEWS page:"By mixing original soundsources, stranger than strange musique concrète-influenced sampling methods, contemporary classical song constructions, designing process algorithms with the basically different approach of noise and the efforts to do radically new things in what we still call ..rock music' with computational resources, this best-of collection makes of Lezet one of our most challenging artists. Even though being arty and intellectual, this music is raw, powerful, and iconoclastic, with a real urgency : express yourself and forget political correctness !"

Lezet’s"Distorted Piano Recordings"released with MEATRONIC (USA)free d/l album

Catalog ID:
Release Date:
Notes:Igor Jovanovic records and performs under the name of Lezet. Someone's comment about the sound of Lezet was "like Zorn without saxophone," and Zorn's influence is quite clear in a lot of Lezet's other work. For Meatronic Recordings, he submits this patient study of the interaction of piano with distortion, and it is quite hypnotizing once you figure out what is going on. Contra-puntal lines throw off side-band distortion in beautiful and startling ways somehow.
Runtime:21 minutes 38 seconds
You can download this album here:

"Meatronic is a netlabel based out of Tampa, Florida that focuses primarily on experimental and noise artists. We distribute music that is available exclusively in the form free MP3 downloads (192kbps CBR) with special releases on tangible media such as CD, DVD and vinyl.Visit us at "

Barefoot Melt releases free music that explores the realms of ambiance. Our netplays cover the gambit of ambient music which could best be summed up by Bubba, come in Bubba:

Ambient is the fruit of the musical sea. You can listen it, compose it, make it, play it, be it. There's, um, ambient dub, ambient drone, ambient glitch, ambient experimental, ambient soundscapes, ambient electronic, ambient noise, ambient space, ambient techno, new ambient, ambient . . . That's, that's about it.

We at Barefoot Melt consider ourselves first and foremost a fan-based netlabel. Fan-based? Fan-based in that we release individual artists as well as "mixed tapes" of other netlabel music we found interesting and intriguing.
